The other bridge

A legislative committee was told today that the new completion date for the Wakota Bridge has been moved up a year. The eastbound span of the bridge (it’s actually two separate bridges) should open in July 2010.

The massive project began in 2002, and has ballooned by $56 million. It was originally supposed to be finished last year.

The bridge carries I-494 across the Mississippi between Newport and South St. Paul.
